Expert injection therapy for foot and ankle conditions

Steroid injection therapy for foot conditions in Worcester

How long does it take before I feel the benefits of a steroid injection?

We will always use local anaesthetic with your steroid injection which can reduce your pain within a few minutes. The steroid effect will take slightly longer to occur, usually 1-2 weeks. It is advised that you take a few days of relative rest following the injection.

Conditions treated with Steroid Injections:

  • Plantar Fasciitis

    Our steroid injections can provide quick relief from the intense heel pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis. By reducing inflammation in the plantar fascia, patients experience improved mobility and reduced discomfort.

  • Achilles Tendonitis

    Achilles tendonitis can be a nagging condition that affects mobility and quality of life. Steroid injections can help reduce inflammation in the Achilles tendon, promoting healing and alleviating pain.

  • Bursitis

    Steroid injections can effectively treat bursitis, a condition characterised by the inflammation of bursa sacs near the joints of the foot. By reducing inflammation, we can help patients find relief from pain and stiffness.

  • Neuroma

    Steroid injections can be a valuable part of a comprehensive treatment plan for neuromas. They can help reduce inflammation around the affected nerves, providing relief from the pain, tingling and numbness associated with this condition.

  • Arthritis

    Steroid injections are often recommended for individuals suffering from arthritis in the foot and ankle. By targeting the affected joints, these injections can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain, enabling a better quality of life.

The benefits of Steroid Injections:

  • Quick Relief

    Steroid injections can provide rapid relief from pain and inflammation, allowing you to get back on your feet sooner.

  • Non-Invasive

    Unlike surgery, steroid injections are minimally invasive and require no incisions. This means less downtime and a faster recovery.

  • Targeted Treatment 

    Steroid injections precisely target the affected area, minimising potential side effects on the rest of the body.

  • Proven Effectiveness

    Steroid injections have a long history of success in treating foot conditions, providing relief for countless patients.

Steph was very provisional and delt with my problem, she boots and t training shoes sorted out with an outstanding result. I definitely will be going back .
I chose this practice due to the reviews and I honestly couldn’t have made a better decision. I would have no hesitation recommending SO Podiatry to anyone! I had a number of verrucas for over 5 years or so and had tried many ways to treat them over the years. After just 3 swift treatments at SO Podiatry, they’re gone completely. I wish I had of known about this treatment sooner, because now I wouldn’t chose any other treatment or practice. Fantastic service and friendly, professional staff. Thank you Stephanie!

This place is amazing! Elizabeth was fab, I was quite nervous it was going to be painful… I had an ingrown toenail. Elizabeth was careful and treated the area slowly… NO PAIN whatsoever. The whole clinic was a dream with everyone being super friendly and uplifting personalities. My feet and toes feel so much better thank you.

I have seen Steph over the last nine months with a variety of foot ailments and found her to be very professional and approachable. However, most importantly, she has managed to cure my various problems – ingrowing toe nail, verrucae, biomechanics and corn under nail! I have no hesitation in recommending her.


Knowing how Stephanie had helped a friend to be able to continue her professional dancing career, I knew I was seeing the right person for my injury. My expectations were more than satisfied in just three weeks and I have been able to walk pain-free after two sessions, the third visit just a check up. The healing and comfort level in my foot continues. Initially fearing I might be virtually house-bound and hobbling to get anywhere, I am able to forget any injury and lead my usual busy life with great joy … and I mean it!! I think everyone should see you Steph!

I used to suffer with incredible knee pain, it was a stabbing sensation that would stop me taking another step. It could be very painful, even at night so I took painkillers every morning and evening for it. Not any more. I just want to say thank you so much as can honestly say I haven’t had any pain in my knee since having MLS Laser treatment at SO Podiatry. I have since stopped taking all painkillers and I am using both legs as evenly as each other, it really is just amazing. At one point I thought I would need a knee replacement and now I’ve even thought about booking a cycling holiday.

My 11-year-old daughter had multiple warts on her hands and multiple verruca on her feet. She was embarrassed and had low confidence due to these embarrassing skin lesions. We had tried helping her with over-the-counter remedies and nothing made a difference. We had read about swift microwave therapy and its success rate, so we booked an appointment to speak with Steph at SO Podiatry to see if this treatment would be successful. Swift microwave therapy was the treatment of choice and after two sessions the Veruca and warts have totally gone. Our daughter is now back to her cheerleading and rock climbing activities which she loves, and we’re pleased to say she is now a much happier and more confident girl.

My 13yr old son first saw Stephanie for a biomechanics appointment. He had frequent calf strains/pulls, and had been injured for 8 weeks. As well as prescribing some insoles, Stephanie recommended specific strengthening exercises. He is now back to playing football 4 times a week, stronger than ever!

Mrs N Parkin

I’ve been coming to Steph for over a year now for toenail reconstruction and I can’t thank her enough for giving me my confidence back. My toenails have been damaged for years and I’ve always hidden my feet and felt self conscious about them but she’s made it possible for me to have them on show again and I’m so happy.

Miss C Parker

Six months ago I visited So Podiatry and Steph was absolutely amazing in assessing my stance, posture, walking and running gait and then arranging for my custom orthotic insoles to be made by a leading UK supplier. She was informative, knowledgeable and communicative throughout, and I felt that the service was excellent value for money. The orthotics are amazingly comfortable and it took no time at all to get used to wearing them. I recently ran my first marathon, Steph’s advice, treatment and the custom made orthotics made all the difference.

Neil Dixon, Worcester

I can certainly rate Stephanie. My painful verrucae have totally gone, It is such a relief to be able to be on my feet without any pain after all these years.

A A, Worcester

I found the service I got from Stephanie of SO Podiatry was excellent. She was very professional, knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely care about getting a good outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and using her again.

S Gray, Worcester

After two treatments by Stephanie it was gone! No sign of the verruca on my heel at all. Everybody asks does it hurt. Yes, it does for a very short time. Pay affects people in different ways, for me it was so worthwhile that if I had another verrucae, I would be straight in to see Stephanie. The Swift microwave therapy causes a very short burst of pain, which makes one jump, but is over in seconds. It is no worse than needling. As the treatment progresses the discomfort level decreases to the point where at the end, I could hardly feel it. It really is no big deal ad I would recommend SO Podiatry and the Swift microwave treatment to anyone.
